Ole Miss star receiver Laquon Treadwell is headed to the pros according to a release from the school.

He was the SEC's only 1,000-yard receiver this season and came back from a gruesome injury last year to do it. And here's a statement from Treadwell himself:

"After sitting down with my family, we have decided it is time for me to take the next step in my career and enter the 2016 NFL draft. It's always been a dream of mine to play in the NFL, and I can't thank my teammates, coaches and our great fans enough for their unbelievable support since the first day I stepped foot on campus. No matter how far life may take us, I will always be an Ole Miss Rebel. God bless."

Treadwell is projected as a top ten pick by CBSSports.com and is believed to be the best wide receiver in this year's draft class.
